InstituteForEnergy_Competition_InTextThe Saint Francis University Institute for Energy placed third in the statewide Energy Sprout Competition held July 28 at Penn State.

A sustainable energy design competition, Energy Sprout, looked to foster the development and deployment of innovative, community-scale, sustainable energy programs and projects in Pennsylvania. Saint Francis proposed the development of an interactive webtool that would allow Pennsylvanians to easily determine if their property is suitable for renewable energy.

With the third-place prize money (provided by the West Penn Power Sustainable Energy Fund and the Sustainable Energy Fund), the Institute will develop the tool specific for Cambria, Somerset and other Southwest Pennsylvania counties.
